[laughter] former senator rick santorum of pennsylvania was elected to the u.s. house of representatives in 1998 at the age of 32. when 1995 to 2007 he served in the u.s. senate. in 2000 he was elected to the position of senate republican conference chairman. he became one of the most successful government reformers in our history. taking on washington's powerful special interests from the moment he arrived. along with john boehner and others he was one of the famous gang of seven that expose post office scandals and it was his record that prompted a reporter to write in a recent article that santorum was a tea party kind of guy before there was a tea party. he is the author of the welfare reform act that has empowered millions to leave the welfare rolls and enter the workforce. he wrote and championed the legislation that [unintelligible] and the combatting autism act because he believes each and every individual by you and the most notably to be protected. he f
standard. our invasions, he wrote, have been liberations. the weekly standard says libya will be america's fifth war of muslim liberation. they even posted alongside this editorial this portrait of the american revolutionary war. i am not sure of the exact analogy. when you think about it, the american colonial rebels are, maybe, they are benghazi, in which case the u.s. intervening in libya is like, like, yeah, okay, the analogy doesn't make sense at all. still, you get the idea. a noble image. libya already america's fifth war of muslim liberation. and that, that triumveret claim is from the right. that is why president obama is doing what he is doing the way he is doing it in libya. it is the overarching america in the world challenge of the obama presidency. it is the overall america in the world challenge of all americans after the george w. bush era. this image, still promoted by the american right, even now, that the u.s. is stomping around the muslim world, imposing our desires on those savage people because frankly we know better. that is the narrative of america in the world in

. this is the new republican plan to go after budgets in america. this is exactly what republican governors like walker have always dreamed of. they've been on a mission to privatize public education for years so they can make money. republicans can't stand the fact that public education isn't about the almighty dollar. the demonization of public education in america, can we come it a conclusion tonight that this really has to stop? because we have to take a closer look at what we're doing to the future of our country? and it's all starting with the work force, isn't it? the teachers. got to go after them. let me remind americans tonight that nobody goes into teaching to get rich. they do it because they love helping people. they love the reward of seeing kids reach their potential. it takes a special person to be a teacher. but governors like walker want teachers to bear the burden of shared sacrifice. walker refused. he refused to raise taxes on the rich. but he wants to stick it to the teachers who average, don't let me knock you off the couch tonight, folks, a whopping $51,000 a year. it's n
. a public service created by america's cable companies. >> our series of interviews with likely g.o.p. candidates continues with former pennsylvania senator rick santorum. we'll talk to him about his political career. when he began thinking of running for president and why. what issues he thinks are important in the 2010 campaign. states rights and health care. his views on abortion. church views on state. and his views on catholocism. this is about 50 minutes. >> when did you decide you had to get involved? >> the same motor vague as a lot of the tea party people. i thought this was a tipping point. if obama care took over the health care system, america as i was given it, as my grandfather and father came to this country that place would no longer exist. i went out started talking and working on campaigns and helping people around the country and trying to stir people up and provide a message, and i got a lot of feedback saying, hey you should think of doing this again, running for something. just again, kept walking down the path. i found out by th
address on saturday. here's what he said in south america last week about why we're there. >> our military action is in support of an international mandate from the security council that specifically focuses on the humanitarian threat posed by colonel gadhafi to his people. now, i also have stated that it is u.s. policy that gadhafi needs to go. and we've got a wide range of tools in addition to our military efforts to support that policy. >> what does he need to say tonight? >> he hasn't addressed the american people and done it in a sort of logical way to explain why the it's in the u.s. interest, and particularly with secretary gates saying it's not a vital interest of the united states. how does this differ? i don't think he's going to address this tonight. i think he wants to be deliberately ambiguous about this. but why is this in the united states interest to protect civilians, the humanitarian mission and not what's happening in syria, to protesters. why it's not in our interest to protect the protesters in yemen or in bahrain. so that case has not been made. and i don't think he's
. if the government took over the health care system, america as we know it, as i was given it, as my grandfather who came to this country that place would no longer exists. so i just went out and started talking and working on campaigns and talking to people around the country and trying to stir people up and provide a message and a lot of feedback. you should think about doing this again, running for something. i kept walking down the path. i found out, by the way, when i went to iowa we had been in 21 states but when i went to iowa c-span actually covered my speech. other folks started paying attention. they said, "oh you are running for president." i said, "no, i'm just visiting the states." i kept going back to iowa and then new hampshire and south carolina because, every time i did, i got covered. i wanted to be heard. when i did that, was encouraged by people in those states to start thinking about it and that is sort of how this all happened. it was really by accident. >> you were quick to point out you are not a tea party guy. >> i love the tea party but i will not claim the mantle. tea part
latin america, the economy, he may take one question and have a brief statement but it's the balancing act, why he is no latin america. but obviously acknowledging the major news in libya. >> well, one question's going to one heck of an answer. because i want to know, a lot of people want to know what are we doing in libya? are we going in there to kill gadhafi? if not, what is the plan for gadhafi? what is he to do? if you were gadhafi what would you do? we're going in there with a so-called no-fly zone but limited potential for fire power. going after his command and control center, which is basically him. what is he to do? are we offering him an escape out of country? what end game are we forcing him to. i wish i knew this. war is politics by other means what are the politics of this war? certainly in the short run it's to protect lives of people who would be killed in a slaughter of civil yaians an in benghazi. i hope the american people keep asking that, what are we trying to accomplish here. the news reporting has been unsatisfactory in that regard. i don't know if you are even a
backs it up. it is families that are the solution and the ultimate building block for america. because no stimulus, no entitlement reform, no health care initiative, no educational revamp can match the power of an intact, two parent family and driving economic growth health and well being in the united states. [applause] and i come from a family where my parents did divorce. i understand the difficulty and the difficulty that is single parents have. and this is not to den grate them in any way. but it's also to say our government needs to prefer a tax code and a policy that prefers family formation and the building up of families so that children have a safe environment to grow up because no one loves them more than mom and d. no government agency, no government bureaucrat. it's mom and dad. we've been told that we need a truce on social issues and i would highly disagree with that because the truth is social conserveatism is fiscal conserveatism. i mentioned just briefly about the fair tax. i am as a tax lawyer as i told you earl
for destruction of israel and then the spread to america. that is coming up. but it all ties in to the 12th imam, christian anti-christ. and it also ties in to what else is going on in the middle east. it's a little strange. let's start here at home first, with your wallet. the man who runs the largest bond fund in the entire world, so he probably knows a thing or two, says the u.s. treasurys, the things, you know, our debt have "little value" because of our ever-increasing debt burden. warren buffett suggested avoiding betting on the u.s. dollar because he believes it's about to tank. wall street is increasing their interest in what they call tail risk. what that is, is funds that are being set up by pimco, deutsche bank now and other wall street firms. we have been called crazy and we told you prepare. prepare. for massive stock market dives. the funds lose 15% per year in normal conditions but they are structured they're structured to cash in big-time in a time of crisis. nobody has done these before. people are now saying, i don't think this is good. something is going on. what else can i do
. they would give me an african name, barack, or "blessed," believing that in a tolerant america your name is no barrier to success. >> but his father only stayed for a couple of years. and then, he went to study at harvard, and left the mom and the son behind. >> the marriage really fell apart at that point. he ultimately moved back to africa. >> narrator: he would only see his american son one other time. there were other women, and seven other children. >> his whole family seems to have been pretty free-thinking. and they seem to have been a pretty non-conformist household. and certainly, his mother went on to be a very free-thinking and much-traveled person. >> narrator: his mother remarried. they moved to indonesia, but her ambitions for her son were decidedly american. >> she came into my room at 4:00 in the morning, force fed me breakfast, and proceeded to teach me my english lessons for three hours before i left for school and she went to work. i offered stiff resistance to this regimen. she would patiently repeat her most powerful defense-- "this is no picnic for me either, buster
are in it. we better be in it to win it. if there is doubt we get out. win it means gadhafi goes and america gets to get out of there. and let the people of why create their own government. choose their own leader. and america, no nation building, we get out, we take care of our affairs elsewhere. >> greta: one he steps down. two he goes into exile and leaves libya and three he is captured and stands trial and four he's killed. which should be the goal? >> i think gadhafi is going to end up dead through this mission. whether it is at the hands of the rebels who have turned on him. or whether it is at the hands of america and her allies as we are engaged in in no-fly zone. which again, seems to be turning into much more. i think at the end of the day gadhafi is not gonna go willingly. >> greta: is it a failure on our part if we turnover command and control to someone else to nato or france or whatever. and gadhafi is still in power s that a failure on our part? >> america will have failed. -- if we turnover command and control of this mission and the mission of ousting gadhafi is not fulfille
. hat's off to you. "america live" starts right now. megyn: welcome, everyone. fox news alert on libya. hi. i'm megyn kelly. in a news briefing moments ago, a top u.s. general saying that a stalemate with moammar qaddafi could be a possible outcome here. the stalemate could allow qaddafi to stay in power, that coming in as fox is learning that libya used reporters as human shields to head off a planned missile attack on a qaddafi compound. we'll have a live report from the ground in libya in a few moments. another alert, meantime, on the fallout over japan's nuclear crisis. we're getting word that nuclear officials here in the united states are launching new inspections and reviews of our own nuclear reactors in an effort to prevent a similar disaster. a new setback in efforts to prevent a nuclear meltdown in japan. workers at fukushima evacuated after smoke was seen rising from at least one of the damaged reactors. efforts to cool down overheating fuel rods are temporarily put on hold. trace gallagher has more live from our west coast newsroom. trace? >> reporter: this is a dangerous
publishers including housing america and liberty nor safety are both outside publisher's. but we do both. >> thank you very much for your time. >> thank you so much. >> from new york city, liel leibovitz recounts the visit of 120 boys from china's qing empire to america in 1872. the boys and listed as members of the chinese educational mission were sent to the united states united states to learn the innovations of the last and return to china with new ideas. this is about 35 minutes. >> before i start to tell you the story of these remarkable men, i would like to tell a very short story of a far less remarkable man, myself. i was born in tel aviv, israel and when i was about 10 years old, and mother took me to spend the summer in a mysterious, exotic, faraway land filled with rich and splendid treasures. i'm talking of course about new jersey. and when i got to new jersey and attended summer camp for a couple of months, i made a bunch of startling discoveries. some discoveries were small, like the fact that previously believed to reside in fruit actually could come in a box or that ther
, america. welcome to the "glenn beck program." as a kid i watched "star trek" with my dad and i had to lay on the floor like this because i was the tv remote control. my dad would say "turn it to 7." i'm definitely not an uber "star trek" geek or anything, but do you remember episode 77, the savage curtain? it's been 42 years ago this month that this aired. i don't know this stuff by heart or anything. a lot of this -- look at this guy. i brought you here. do you remember this? this is the one where abraham lincoln somehow appears on the uss enterprise and they go to a planet where the lava rock comes to life and forces kirk, spoke, and other people to do battle with newt genghis kahn ad other people from history. they wanted to see which was stronger. good or evil. watch. >> you have failed to demonstrate differences between the philosophies. good and evil use the same message and achieve the same result. >> glenn: yes, yes. >> you seem to use the same method but you achieve the same results. good versus evil. >> glenn: yeah. yeah. looking back on this, it might explain my lack of childho
place in america made it incumbent upon us as a body to reform social security. two years later when the american people put a democrat in the white house, i renewed my call for action. i said that republicans ready to work with the president on entitlement reform, and i repeated that call again four months ago when the voters decided to put republicans in charge of the house of representatives. throughout this time i've held out hope that our friends on the other side would rise to the occasion. if not when republicans controlled the white house, at least when they did. i was encouraged further when president obama said repeatedly back in 2009 that his administration would seek to work with us on serious entitlement reform that preserves the safety net for our seniors, for people with disabilities and which also puts on a firmer, stable footing for generations to come. so the president has acknowledged the seriousness of the problem. he has noted himself that calls are escalating even as the population is getting older, creating the perfect storm for a fiscal crisis that dwarfs even
thought it was a good idea. >> america cannot use the military wherever repression occurs. given the costs and risks, we must measure our interests against the need for action. but that cannot be an argument for never acting. on behalf of what's right. in this particular country, libya at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect on a horrific scale. they had a unique ability to stop the violence and a mandate for action. a brought coalition prepared to join us. the support of arab countries and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. we also have the title stop gadhafi's forces in their tracks without putting american troops on the ground. america's responsibility has a leader and more profoundly our responsibilities to fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a detrayal of who we are. some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. the us of america is different. >> the united states of america is different. he is being very careful to talk about this particular country. this particular moment. then describing ve
in here. >> he named this as an important strategic interest of the united states and as being in america's national interest. but the things that he described as proving that were potential flood of refugees in the middle east, the democratic impulses on view in the middle east with the various revolutions and uprisings being quenched by this brutal dictator, and un credibility, speaking for the international community and stepping up in cases like this. that is the sort of thing, you could make that case about america having a strong national strategic interest for any number of other conflicts or potential conflicts that we could get ourselves embraid in in the region or in any other region. what he defined tonight was why libya and not syria, why libya and not yemen, why not the other places where there are bad things going on that could cause a flood of refugees. and he essentially said because it could be done in libya. the united states had an opportunity. >> this is located in between egypt and tunesia. he was very specific about the problem being the flood of refugees, over those
seemed possibly to be the admission by president obama that america would now be actively henning these rebels and presumably arming them in the process. what did you make of that development in this story? >> reporter: if that's the way this is going to take shape over the coming weeks and months, it's clearly going to be a very protracted affair, because the opposition really isn't in a place to face off against gadhafi's army, even if you neutralize the army, their heavy weapons, their superiority, and advantage on the battlefield, what would seem to be serving -- gadhafi's armed the tribes loyal to him so you see people with more weapons on gadhafi's side and will use them against the rebels. this will turn to a wider civil war where even gadhafi can't predict what's going to happen. if the united states and others are going to arm the rebels, he's going to have to keep the pressure up on the rebels and he's going to have to arm the population that will support him. those oil installations that the rebels have just taken over the last few days piers. >> nic robertson, i want t
what it is like to live in the new world, declining america, declining europe. how do you make money and create jobs? it is a very complicated, scary place. bhay did is what they did in bhay did is what they did in washington. but it's more creative and you can do it actually for clients and be a little bit more honest about it. brian: where do you live? >> i spend most of my time living in germany. one of my clients is the dutch government. i spend time in the hague as well but most of the time in germany. brian: why would someone hire you? >> i have a unique background. educated in the u.k., so i understand europeans but i lived and worked in washington. i worked for the heritage foundation on the right and the council is in the middle so i know the points of view of every major school of thought in washington so that's a good reason to hire me. brian: where was home originally? >> ohio. a place called rocky river about an hour from cleveland. i had an idyllic, eisenhower childhood it was lovely. i go back to that, pocketbook issues are what matter to a lot of people. and in foreig
budget crises of their own leading to angry protests about the future role of unions in america. and throughout the world uprisings in north africa and the middle east sending oil prices surging. stephen moore joins me now. one issue at a time. >> okay. >> when these protests in state capitols subside, will unions, which have been weakened over the last 30 years in america, will they come out stronger or weaker? >> well, i don't view this as an assault against the unions but i do think this is a really important fight for the future of finances of state and local governments across the country. one of the things i try to tell viewers is this isn't just about wisconsin. what's happening in madison. this is about what is likely to happen in many, many states if they don't get their public pensions and their public health care under control. and so i think the stakes are really high here, ali. i think in the end that these legislate tours are going to do the right thing. >> sorry, do the right thing, do the right thing, you mean go ahead with these plans that some people call union

.msnbc.com. good evening, rachel. >> in the united states of america, we are used to thinking of ourselves as a super power and throwing our weight around when he feel the need to. only when you take a step back and take a wide historical view that you realize one of the consequences of that self concept is that we end up feeing that need to throw our weight around quite a lot. we go to war all the time big wars, little wars, yum wars and wars. america fights a lot of wars. >> the participation will be for a limited period, but i concluded there is no alternative to returning to lebanon if they are to have a chance to stand on their own feet. grenada is a friendly island paradise for tourism. it was a colony getting ready as a bastian to export terror and undermine democracy. we got there just in time. >> at 7:00 eastern time, air forces of the united states launched a series of strikes against the headquarters, terrorists for 70s and military assets that support mo ma gadhafi's activities. >> allied forces began an attack in iraq and kuwait. these attacks continue as i speak. >> let me sa

therefore, the main task of latin america is to recover the lost time and tap all of its potential. we have lots of things in common with the u.s., fast, generous territory, homogeneous people, hardworking people. we don't have racial problems that affect some african countries or the wars that are waged in europe nor the religious conflict of europe itself. and therefore latin america is called to compromise or rather commitment with its own fate. and therefore we are looking forward to president obama's words. we are all left-handed. we have many coincidences. we studied in harvard, both of us. we are sportsmen. president obama continues to be a basketball player. i was in my time as well. i think the first lady of the u.s. is very good-looking, and president obama has said the same thing about the first lady of chile. there are plenty of 0 coincidences. but the most important one is the one we'll find this afternoon, and modestly if i could suggest to president obama, we hope to have a partnership that is two -- one where we have all responsibilities and not existentialism becau
